You’re probably reading this right now because it’s either you’ve already watched how Ellenya Lakampati revealed your hunger for social media presence or perhaps you’re too curious why those who’ve already seen it find everything hilarious.
Well, it can be both and so much more!
Maris Racal (Ellenya L) and Inigo Pascual (Stephen) stirs humour as they remind every single millennials and all social media influencer hopefuls of the changes that the social media age has made in their entry to the Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino 2019.
Here are a few reasons why this movie hit us right in the feels:
1. All for Instagram.
Don’t we do everything just for Instagram? Those OOTD’s (Outfit of the Day), the perfect background and angle – they’re all for the “gram”, right? In this day and age, we are mostly particular as to how our photos are taken regardless of the risk. It’s “tiis-ganda” and “buwis-buhay” to make sure that we only post the best, don’t we?
Ellenya has playfully done her part in making sure this message is conveyed. Remember that part when she had to ask her dad to stand on the roof to hold a regular phone camera attached to a stick just so her introductory video would look as though it was shot using a “drone”? All those sacrifices just for the “gram”!
At some point, the little things that we do from “angling,” perfect smile or display of emotions, the number of shots supposed to be taken and being so particular with the “lighting” are things we also do “for the gram.”
Why do we do this again? It’s to make sure that our photos/videos are wowed to, right? Ellenya
